In Canada, I had to work with different brands of chainsaws professional level. For me personally, all Husqvarne models on good score. Powerful engines, moderate weight, trouble-free start and stable engine operation regardless of weather and temperature swings.

Decommissioned by Husqvarne of the model 372 XP bought for next to nothing, but at recovery had to be thoroughly invested. Expenses gradually but surely pay off, for such an apparatus work is in the winter and in the summer. Doing a small business on felling old trees, with the absence of the main work I agree to sawing fuel wood. For pruning branches I hold a lighter and more convenient delimber Chinese made, but the main work is done professional tool. Valentine
